A Date-Palm in Jannah!
Allah Ta’ala loves it when His servants praise Him. Our beloved Nabi ﷺ has taught us many ways through which we are able to easily praise Him and make Him happy.
There is one Hadeeth of our beloved Nabi ﷺ through which we not only learn some special words to praise Allah Ta’ala but in return a date-palm is planted for us Jannah each time we read it! The words are:
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ
‘Subhanallahil Adheemi wabihamdihi’
Translation: Glory is to Allah, the Magnificent and His is the praise
Our Beloved Nabi ﷺsaid:
“Whoever says: ‘Glory is to Allah, the Magnificent, and with His praise (Subhanallahil Adheem, wa bihamdihi)’ a date-palm is planted for him in Paradise.” (Tirmidhi)
Another Special Benefit
By reading it 100 times Allah Ta’ala forgives the sins of the reader even if they are equal to the foam of the ocean. (meaning a very large amount)
Sayyiduna Jabir radhiyallahu anhu says that Rasulullah ﷺ said, “If anyone says a hundred times in a day, ‘Subhanallah wabihamdihi’, his sins will be removed from him though they are like the foam of the sea. (Bukhari and Muslim.)
By adding a few extra words, the virtue further increases!
1) A few words which are loved by Allah, (which are) light on the tongue, (yet) heavy in the scales.
سُبْحَانَ اللِه وَبِحَمْدِهِ سُبْحَانَ اللِه الْعَظِیْمِ
Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim
2) More weightier than an entire morning of worship.
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْقِهِ، وَرِضَا نَفْسِهِ وَزِنَةَ عَرْشِهِ، وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِهِ
Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi
Note: These words are very special and rewarding because they are full of Praise and Glorification of Allah Ta’ala.
